Shoolini University has another feather in its success cap. It is among India’s ‘best places to work’, and the certification has been given by none other than the renowned global organisation, Great Place to Work.
Every year, through the Great Place to Work ® Assessment and Recognition Program, workplace culture of almost 900 organisations is assessed in India. These organisations are related to various businesses, NGOs, government agencies from as many as 20 industries.
Shoolini University, which has advanced and evolved tremendously since its inception 10 years ago, is proud to be one of the two universities in India that have been awarded this certification. It is also the first organisation from Himachal Pradesh to claim the honour, others being corporates and varied institutions.
Congratulating the faculty, staff, students, and others connected with the university for their contribution towards earning this distinction, Pro Vice Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla said, “A great university cannot be built without great faculty. Apart from our focus on research and education, at Shoolini University we are also building a professional, caring and learning organisation. The university’s mission,” he reiterated, “is to attract and retain the best talent”.
According to a communication received from the prestigious international organisation, Great Place to Work, the Certification Programme “is the first step for an organisation in its journey to build a High-Trust, High-Performance Culture and your organisation has successfully accomplished this milestone”.
The certification is awarded after a comprehensive, independent and highly confidential survey conducted by the organisation, Great Place to Work, which is not accessible to anyone connected with the institution or corporate concerned. The survey comprises a questionnaire on how the organisation treats its employees, opportunities for professional growth, encouragement and compensation for good work, credibility, HR policies, and monetary compensation.
Valid for a year, the certificate can be renewed after a repetition of the entire procedure.
